I stayed two nights here in a private single room. The room was barely big enough for a single bed and rickety chair, but the linen was clean and comfortable, and the communal showers kept very clean. The walls are fairly thin so it was easy to hear people outside, but in practice everyone was quiet and respectful after 10pm.... More

The place is well located and the owners are very nice. They helped us a lot with the bookings for the activities as we were staying a short time in Rotorua. They gave us many discounts for tours and visits. The rooms were hot (no air conditionner nor fan) and very narrow. The beds were comfortable. The bathroom was noisy... More

A super spot just a few minutes walk from Rotorua centre. Really pleasant hosts. Spotlessly clean. We stayed 7 nights, if we return to New Zealand will definitely visit again. Plenty of parking on premises, everything you need all within a few minutes walk. Fantastic!!

Clean and tidy rooms, well equipped common kitchen, free WiFi. Frank at the office is amazingly friendly and helpful. True, the rooms are not that big, but still not so small for it to become an issue, we fitted nice there.

Wifi worked great... More

The service was terrible, everyone was rude, we were expelled from the room in the morning in a really rude way. They gave us a rough to towel, that would be used to clean. Internet doesn't work properly and the room was too small, my foot was in my sister face. If you have options don't stay there. Was like... More

This place is easy to find in Rotorua town centre and when we drove into Astray around 6 pm, it was drizzling and felt quite tired after the long drive straight from Auckland domestic airport. Frank, whom I believed is the owner and also manning the reception counter that day, had allowed us to park at the last remaining available... More

This place really has a spot in our hearts, you can't ask for much more when it comes to convenience and you get all that you could possibly need to make a stay comfortable. The owners of astray could not have done more for us and we are so sad we had to leave. Please take the time to visit... More

We spent 3 nights in a double room at Astray while in Rotorua. It was one of the cleanest hostels we have stayed in in 7 months of travelling!! The English girls at reception are so friendly & gave us good advice of things to do in Rotorua. The hostel is in a great location - really close to bars/... More
